Vince Vaughn Surprises College With Openly Conservative Speech
Vince Vaughn is so money, baby. I know, I went there. Sorry, Vince. It's unoriginal, but I had to.
It's increasingly hard for any celebrity to "come out" about having non-liberal political opinions. Mainly because liberals are intolerant and full of hatred towards anyone who disagrees with them about anything... ever. If you need further proof, just look at how the intolerant liberals microagressed Bruce Jenner after his big Diane Sawyer interview where he revealed himself to be a Republican.
So for an actor like Vince Vaughn who still has a viable career outside of movies on the "Hallmark Channel", it takes some pretty serious courage to discuss his political beliefs...
Kudos to The College Fix for this great grab. He covered everything from Hollywood to Ron Paul to National Security. He also tackled political correctness on college campuses...
“There is a challenge because you are up against such a system in place that kind of indoctrinates, if you will, that this is good and that is bad. A lot of that to me is really laughable. If you can sit with someone individually and just point out how crazy some of these things are, right? I feel bad for the kids who are going there...but I think a lot of kids also will kind of wake up at some point and say, ‘This feels a little suffocating, some of these ideas feel like it’s really being jammed down my throat,’ which is a good reason to kind of question it, right? Like, why is every week, you know, global warming week?”
Vaughn's acting has taken a somewhat different tone since he's become more vocal about politics. Mainly known for sex comedy's like "Old School" and "Wedding Crashers" - which don't get us wrong, are hysterical - his most recent movies while still irreverent, have really touching stories with morals to them. The Internship shows he and Owen Wilson mentoring college kids that the American Dream "that they grew up with in the 80s" is alive and well. Delivery Man showed the importance of fatherhood and being there for your children...in a very Vince Vaughn way.
Vince, you're so money baby! Sorry, I had to.
